"The Hamsa, which mean five in Arabic, or hamesh in Hebrew, refers to the five fingers in the hand. It is an old and popular amulet for magical protection from the evil eye. The hamsa hand appears both in a two-thumbed symmetrical form, and in a natural form with one thumb. Hamsas are very popular decorative items and come in all imaginable colors and decorations."
